Multihull Solutions' 2019 Gold Coast Boat Show on the Gold Coast on 23 March was a huge success drawing crowds from all over Australia and New Zealand to view the extensive lineup of power and sail multihulls on display.

Six boats were sold on the day, including a new Fountaine Pajot Astrea 42 and five pre-owned multihulls.

The event drew more than 500 visitors from as far afield as New Zealand, Tasmania and Perth who came to the Gold Coast Sales Centre in Coomera to inspect boats in the marina and in the Out-of-Water display facility, including models from Fountaine Pajot, Leopard, Lagoon, Privilege, Grainger, Seawind and Schionning.

Each of the boat show's free information sessions was fully booked with standing room only as cruising enthusiasts flocked to listen to industry experts present on a range of topics, including yacht ownership, cruising first aid, rallies, new technologies and more.

Multihull Solutions managing director Mark Elkington said the day was a great indicator of the ever-increasing demand for quality multihulls and service.

"We were ready for a busy day but were thrilled to see so many people turn up to view our unique boat show," Mark said.

"Our team went to a lot of effort to ensure we had an impressive range of quality brokerage boats ready for inspection, and the information sessions were extremely popular.

"The success of the show is clear evidence of how many people now recognise the advantages of multihulls, with many visitors from monohull backgrounds coming to the show to learn more about what makes the two and three-hulled boats more safe, comfortable and enjoyable for cruising."
